Fall Staples: Cool Watch & Effortless Wool Dress

It’s finally starting to feel like Fall in NYC, and I’m getting into the cooler weather with a few of my favorite fall staples. For this Fall, I’m into clean and elegant pieces that elevate my wardrobe, including a cool watch and an effortless wool dress that can take me from day to night. This wood watch from JORD is truly a unique timepiece that makes a subtle but impactful statement. I’ve never had a wood watch before and always thought it would be too “nature-y” for me. But when I received this watch and tried it on, it fit in seamlessly with my style and is just the right balance between creative and classic. I also really love the packaging and the wood box. It definitely elevates the watch and makes it look and feel expensive.

Another one of my fall staples is an effortless sweater dress that goes with anything. I’m in love with this wool dress from Iris & Ink. Unfortunately, I only had the dress on loan from the ShopStyle Social House event and had to return it last week. I’m seriously considering buying the dress as it fits like a glove and is so flattering. It’s definitely one of those pieces that looks even better once you put it on. The cut is impeccable and I really like the subtle slits that add just a hint of sex appeal.

For the rest of the look, I added a pop of color with electric blue heels and a statement turquoise necklace. I wanted to keep everything in the outfit classic but with a bit of flair. I really like the simple elegance of this look. The neutral wool dress highlighted with colorful accents is a perfect complement to the JORD watch.

Can we also just talk about how pretty this nail polish is?! The color is Atlantic Mist and it’s actually a special edition of Formula X made in collaboration with my favorite blogger Blair Eadie of Atlantic Pacific. Of course my favorite blogger would come out with the best nail polish color ever.
